2020 itself has been a real rollercoaster of a year — both as a whole and for me personally — and we’re only (already?) halfway through.
My reading has sort of reflected that with some periods where I’ve read way more than usual, a couple of mood slumps and some lack of time dips as well. I’ve even noticed a few points when the genres I was leaning into weren’t what I would have expected.
But, anyways, take a gander at my thoughts on my 2020 reading so far.
The Best Book you’ve read so far in 2020.
The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune

Newest Favorite Character.
Not exactly a character as such, but I loved learning/ reading about Artemisia Gentileschi in Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough.
A close runner-up would be Sam and the whole cast of T.J. Klune’s Tales of Verania series.

I’m leaving this one blank, because there’s just far too many to list.
